Homer Simpson Tries to Vote

what the fuck does CNN's "uncommitted ohio voters" graphic MEAN?

what are they measuring? anyone know?

plus, it's flatlined. WTF? WTFF? (what the fucking fuck.)

am i the only one who gets dizzy watching the lovely sarah speak?
(Lou Dobbs played this song on his show: Sarah, Sarah, storms are brewing in your eyes. Sarah, Sarah, no time is a good time for goodbye.)

Oh, and the song "Barracuda" by Heart...remember how the McCain campaign started using it at live events, and Heart contacted the campaign and asked that their song not be used.

now sarah's talking and the "uncommitted ohio voters" are way up on the plus side. does that mean they're buying it? ok here comes biden, and the graph is going down, down, down down, ok the orange line for "women"" going up. the chicks dig him. women like him a whole lot better than the men. now sarah's talking the women's line drops abruptly.

women can tell when a woman's full of shit. men might just be responding to sarah's sexy trim figure in that hot black suit. ooh la la sarah!oops she's still talking, now the women are with her again. just a couple of notches above normal. she's blathering about teaching, mentions her kids, how they're in public school, she's talking up education, bla bla bla bla. moderator is speaking and the graph falls off.

how are they measuring this? what are they using? is their audience skewed?
how did they pick their audience? how many members? how exactly is this graph being generated in real time like that? if they're going to put sommething like that up there, without an explanation of what it is, what's the point of it?

ok here's what the link goes on to say: one person explained,
"They have a bunch of potential voters from OHIO seated in a room with a dial thingamajig on their hands that when rotated can go from 0 - 100 to show how much they are liking the candidates intervention."

How many people are in the focus groups? 30 to 32, says CNN.

now biden's talking, and the women are digging him again. men, though, too.
i've missed out on their actual answers because i'm so fucking distracted by watching the reactions.

guess i should go just watch.

how can anyone not watch? has there ever been a more jolly election season? has there?
